Dear Double Trouble:
I read your column on foot-
ball predictions in Thursday's
paper and thought it showed an
amazing improvement. Really
that's by far the best thing you
have done up until now. Keep it
up, old boy.

We always appreciate hearing
from our friends. All day we have
been thinking of things we could say
in D. W.'s "Cabbages and Kings,"
which will probably appear on page
5 of next year's Daily.
From Chicago yesterday came the
official results of the 40th annual
Western Conference outdoor track
festivities held in Evanston last
weekend. They were released after
the judges gathered around the pho-
to finish pictures that were taken.
And Michigan's great senior sprint
star, Al Smith, will have to be con-
tent with his first and second, the
judges now say. In the century, they
pointed out that the pictures clear-
ly showed Piker cracking the tape
with inches to spare.
But the 220 should have been
a tie, so says the release. The
photos never produced a closer
finish, but with a stroke of gen-
erosity the judges called Smith
the winner. "In light of the two
close races, there will be no
change in the first place deci-
sions," they said.
In fact there was only one change
announced on the whole weekend
program. Hammond of Ohio State
was given the fourth spot in the
100-yard dash instead of Davenport.
This means that the Buckeye sprint-
er will be the fourth man on the
Big Ten dash relay corps replacing
the lad from Chicago. Instead of
fourth, Davenport finished eighth

his running in other parts. His grades
were not good enough to warrant

was somewhat short of the .300 mark,

number-two singles title and played a
big part in Michigan's finishing third.
This spring even bigger things were
expected of Jim as he refrained from
playing hockey, a sport in which he
had already earned a letter, to get
in top shape for tennis.
But fate stepped in and dealt him
a stiff jolt when he incurred a torn'

School Singles championship. The
same summer, he also won the City
Junior title, all this happening when
he was but 15 years old. He success-

Thirteen Wolverine trackmen willf
make the trek from Ann Arbor to3
Kalamazoo to participate in the an--c
nual Michigan A.A.U. track meet to
be held there today.f
Heading the list of varsity menr
entered in this meet is Alan Smith,r
senior speedster who annexed the
Big Ten championship in the 220-
yard dash last weekend. Alan isj
also entered in the 100-yard dash
where he will meet a serious threatr
in the person of Gerritt Stuckkie, of
Western State. Both can do 9.7.
Warren Breidenbach will have a
busy day running the two sprint
events as well as running the anchor
leg on the relay team. Warren has
stepped the 220-yard distance in 22
seconds during 'practice this year1
but expects to improve this mark
Leutritz To Double1
Jack Leutritz will double in the
440 and as the third man on the
mile relay team. Jack is conceded
an excellent chance of winning the
440-yard run since his teammate,
Breidenbach, is not entered in that
In the mile run, Bill Ackerman
will find plenty of competition when
he meets Tom Quinn of Michigan
Normal and Roy Fehr of Michigan
State. Quinn and Fehr are co-holders
of the state title for the mile event
with a time of 4:14.3.)
The varsity mile relay team, com-
posed of Phil Balyeat, Bill Dobson,
Leutritz and Breidenbach, is one of
the best in the state and should have
no trouble in winning.
Dave Cushing in the pole vault
and Tom Lawton in the shot put
are the other two varsity men en-
tered in the meet. Both meet strong

track team a year ago, is entered

team are also participating unat-
